Fall Smooth Jazz Ratings January
25, 2005 - Fall Ratings Book Highs: In the just released Fall Arbitron ratings
book, Los Angeles' "94.7 The Wave"
(KTWV) had a great season, jumping nearly a full share from the summer to a tie
for sixth place in the +12 ratings, its highest ratings tally in years. Washington
D.C.'s "Smooth Jazz 105.9"
(WJZW) also had a terrific book, rising to seventh, after low rating numbers in
the spring and summer. Detroit's "V 98.7"
(WVMV), always a high-performer in the ratings, did not disappoint, placing sixth.
Cleveland's "107.3 The Wave"
(WNWV) raised a full share to place seventh, bolstered by a new antenna, helping
its sometimes shaky signal in the Cleveland suburbs. St. Louis' WSSM
106.5 also raised nearly a full share, after some shaky recent books. -

down ratings books, falling to a mere fifth, still not too shabby. Dallas' 107.5
The Oasis (KOAI) slipped to fourteenth, while Tampa's WSJT
94.1 dipped a full share and two tenths to eleventh. by - Nick
